Cars 3 2017 film
Cars is a CGI animated film series and Disney media franchise set in a world populated by anthropomorphic vehicles. The franchise began with the 2006 film, Cars, produced by Pixar and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures. The film was followed by a sequel in 2011. DisneyToon Studios produced a 2013 spin-off film Planes, and a 2014 sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue.
Starting with Planes in 2013, DisneyToon Studios, Pixar's sister company, released a spin-off film set in the Cars world, featuring planes as the main characters. The film was followed by the sequel, Planes: Fire & Rescue (2014). In addition to a third Planes film, the studio was also planning spin-off films featuring boats, trains and other vehicles.
The Cars films were directed by John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and DisneyToon Studios. Lasseter executive produced the Planes films. Together, the two Cars films have accrued over $1 billion in box office revenue worldwide.
Lockyer's final story was an interview with Bob Lasseter, who is searching for Lasseter's Reef. Bob Lasseter is the son of Harold Lasseter, the man who claimed to have originally found the gold deposit. The story was broadcast on 7.30, on 29 August 2011.
Cars is the seventh Pixar film. The story is about rookie racecar, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), who gets lost on the way to California for a tiebreaker race in the Piston Cup, a famous race worldwide, and ends up in a little town called Radiator Springs on Route 66, that had since been forgotten because the Interstate was built.
He accidentally wrecks the road and is sentenced to fix it.
During his time, he goes tractor tipping with his new best friend Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) and goes on a drive with his love interest Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt).
He runs "Tow Mater Towing and Salvage" and is the first to befriend and support Lightning throughout his adventure in Radiator Springs. During the film, Mater shows Lightning how to do "Tractor-Tippin'" and how to drive backwards without crashing, a technique which Lightning uses to counter Chick Hicks' dirty racing in the Piston Cup tiebreaker.
In the end, McQueen asks Tex to give Mater an opportunity to fly in a Dinoco helicopter like he always wanted, saying to Sally that Mater is his best friend.
After McQueen fixes the road, Doc Hudson (Paul Newman) no longer wants him in town, so he calls the news crew to take McQueen to Los Angeles, but it doesn't take long for Doc to realize how much he's helped Radiator Springs, so he goes back to being the Hudson Hornet and becomes McQueen's crew chief, while most of the Radiator Springs folks become his pit crew.
McQueen is about to win the race, but helps The King (Richard Petty) cross the finish line after Chick Hicks (Michael Keaton) crashes him and wins the Piston Cup after being in third on the last lap, but is later booed by everyone as comeuppance.
Fearing his title is in jeopardy, Chick enlists the assistance of The Delinquent Road Hazards - DJ, Boost, Wingo, and Snot Rod — the same rowdy cars who detoured McQueen to Radiator Springs, to hijack McQueen's racing gear from Mack on Interstate 40.
Lightning is able to retrieve his equipment and bring the delinquents to justice before winning the next race, which sends Chick into a frenzy. Lightning challenges Chick to a Grand Prix in Radiator Springs, followed by one more Piston Cup race in L.A..
Lightning wins these events, taking the Piston Cup in his sophomore season.
